To celebrate Presidents’ Day 2022, let’s look back at some of the greatest lessons on leadership mindset from U.S. leaders.

Invaluable leadership lessons are everywhere. You just have to know how to find them.

And where better to look than in the wise words of American presidents?

Today, for Presidents’ Day 2022, we honor two of the most influential presidents in U.S. history: George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

We’re gonna do it 10X style — with their powerful words that will help you embody the mindset of a remarkable leader.

Presidents’ Day 2022 Leadership Mindset Lessons

1. “99% of failures come from people who make excuses.” — George Washington

My stance on this thing called “excuses” is clear, and it mirrors George Washington’s statement.

You can make money or you can make excuses — but you can’t make both.

If you want to lead effectively, you need to be an example for your team and eliminate any excuses from your thinking and actions.

2. “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” — Abraham Lincoln

A diverse team of employees is a true asset to any company.

But conflicting beliefs come with vision inconsistencies. It’s your duty as a leader to make sure the whole team is on the same page.

Celebrate differences while bringing people together as an unbeatable collective.

3. “Let your discourse with men of business be short and comprehensive.” — G.W.

Time is money, and leaders know this better than anyone else.

When dealing with people in business — whether clients, team members, or fellow leaders — keep communication short, simple, and to the point.

Convert time you’re wasting into obsession with being a successful leader.

4. “When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.” — A.L.

Look, this leadership thing isn’t a constant string of wins. Challenges are inevitable, and best believe they’re around every corner.

The difference lies in the actions you take when you “reach the end of your rope”. That separates the true leaders from the losers.

Will you let go or tie the knot?

5. “Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages.” — G.W.

Lastly, the secret to mastering the leadership mindset is to persevere.

This is what 10X is all about. Regardless of time period — from the first presidents to wildly successful managers of today — great leaders will persist and insist to achieve excellence.

Now, I want you to become the leader you’ve always been destined to be.

So, I’m going to pay YOU to come to 10X Growth Conference 2022 – the biggest and baddest business conference in the world, with the highest-income speakers you can imagine.
